This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: I WANT "FOLDERS" VIEW BACK!

In v11.3 and earlier, there was a Folder and Tab key within the search panel. This Folder tab is now removed in 11.4. I have used Folders at both my home and work computers to view SnagIt files that were manually moved from a different computer and subsequently stored onto the C: drive or a shared folder. I had the best of two worlds, being able to view, in the Editor, the SnagIt defaults files and the files in the external folders.

When I moved to a different computer at work, I saved the whole snagit folder to a server, mounted the server to my new machine and was able to instantly view in Editor, those files.  I could then toggle back and forth to look at my other projects.  11.4 allows view a list but not an Editor view of these files for quick searching 

The new 11.4 DOES allow searching for Folders, on my C: drive, to find a SnagIt file to open. However, 11.3 or earlier, allowed VIEWING of all the files within the folder, where the new 11.4 can only view the list of the file.  These SnagIt file are encrypted with your naming convention and I only see a file list and not the Editor files themselves. I can pick a file but I don't know what it looks like. The viewing of these in the Editor view of the multiple Folders was great on 11.3. I could Edit or modify as needed. I did not necessarily want to just merge the files from the 2 folders into the SnagIt Default working folder. It worked GREAT before 11.4

I realize that schema updates, where files stored in older versions of SnagIt, may not be available to be opened in newer versions. I also know that I could save capture as a *.snag file and give it a cryptic name that I could recognize and store them into usable folders.

Why did SnagIt remove the folder option. I don't want to go back to 11.3 if I can help it. Maybe add it back to v11.5? Bummer!
